Got an email from RIM that there was a new software version for my BlackBerry. I went to http://www.blackberry.com/update and did the upgrade. I haven't noticed a difference so far.
Version # is v184.108.40.206 (Platform 220.127.116.11)
What's new in this new version?

There is no list of the actual bug fixes/updates that I can find. But here is what I experienced so far.
Before update my Bold would crash when using Stereo Bluetooth with media player, and when using AT&T Navigator for prolonged periods
After Update: I have been running more than 24 hours with no crashes!
Faster response and load times (hardly ever get the annoying BB loading icon)
I am not sure about the 3G/2G switch because this has never been a problem for me.

Odd, I have received no such email from RIM, I have owned this Bold since December of 08 and have had no updates offered. Device came with .167 - I can find no such software update on the RIM site either. The desktop manager can find no such update as well - do yo have a link?
Here's the link:

I did not have to reinstall anything. Desktop manager backed up my phone.
I forgot to mention the web browser loads faster now compared to an un-upgraded bold at the at&t store.

Thanks, I found it right after my post. Installed and now will see if there is much difference. First thing I noticed; there is more application memory than previous. We'll see about the memory leak, which was pretty severe on my device. After a battery pull, it would start out at 18mb and within 6 hours be down to 8mb. I got into the habbit of doing a battery pull every morning. After this update it started out at 28mb - a good sign.
Update went smoothly.
